James Cameron Is Secretly Totally Jealous Of Awesome Movie TitleThough Mr. Avatar himself furrowed his very wealthy brow at "Piranha 3D" as an example of the the new format being used at its worst and most base (where was he when "Clash Of The Titans"or "Alice Or Wonderland" were released? We digress....) Dimension Films had the last laugh when the modestly budgeted $24 million film brought in $10 million on its opening weekend, allowing execs to quickly get a sequel into development.

James Cameron Is Secretly Totally Jealous Of Awesome Movie Title



Though Mr. Avatar himself furrowed his very wealthy brow at "Piranha 3D" as an example of the the new format being used at its worst and most base (where was he when "Clash Of The Titans"or "Alice Or Wonderland" were released? We digress....) Dimension Films had the last laugh when the modestly budgeted $24 million film brought in $10 million on its opening weekend, allowing execs to quickly get a sequel into development.

Well, the wheels are firmly in motion as "Feast" director John Gulager and "Saw" writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have been hired on to write the sequel titled -- wait for it -- "Piranha 3DD", thus securing the best title of any movie in 2011. Dimension wants this one churned out fast and are aiming to repeat their success by landing the sequel in theaters next August.

We're not sure why they even need a script at all. They just need a cheap cast, some girls willing to show skin and an outline written on a bar napkin. We kind of like that with the whole 3D trend going respectable and high brow (hello Martin Scorsese "Hugo Cabret" and "Tron: Legacy") that someone out there is keeping it dumb and dirty. And you know that James Cameron secretly wishes he didn't have to spend years on research and the inventing of gizmos and could just grab a 3D camera and go shoot something silly and fun. But he would never admit it.
